Joshua: I spent 4 days and 3 nights to experience Siargao’s pristine, fine white sand beaches, and clear blue-tinged waters. I rented a boat for P800 to go to three islands namely Naked, Guyam, and Daku.
Naked Island was a huge clump of white sand right in the middle of the ocean. There was no vegetation on the island, just white sand and clear, blue waters.
Daku Island is the biggest of the three and also has its own barangay. The island boasts having fine, white sand and clear, turquoise waters. The placid waves of the island are in contrast to the waves regularly found in Cloud 9. The coconut trees dancing to the beat of the wind and the clear blue sea in the horizon, what more could you ask for?
Guyam Island is the smallest of the bunch. Despite its small size, this scenic island has emerald-tinged waters and white sand. The island is the perfect place to just take things slow and relax.
Hire a motorbike and travel through the countryside to see a one of a kind landscape. The Magpupungko Rock Pool is a stunning landscape lined with rock formations — a huge boulder tittering on the edge of the pools is its most prominent feature. The emerald pools are best seen during low tide, where you can see pockets of pools scattered throughout the area.
Siargao is idyllic, laidback, and the ideal place to get away from it all.
From Surigao City, you can also board the ferry to the equally beautiful Dinagat Islands.
